Having undergone a stroke, 49-year-old Briandolph Adjin Tettey could neither speak nor walk for the past three months. Diagnosed in his own country, Ghana, he was in immediate need for a proper treatment that would emancipate him from the shackles of paralysis. Here, his son shares the story of their search for a comprehensive stroke treatment and how they arrived in India.
How did you narrow down on India for Mr. Tettey’s treatment?
My father was suffering a lot. We were worried because back in Ghana even after we took him to the hospital for treatment, his condition did not improve and time was slipping away. So, instead of waiting I searched over the internet for healthcare options that would not only provide a proper cure but would also be within my budget. That’s when I came across Vaidam Health’s website.
In which hospital did Mr. Tettey have his treatment in India?
What remedial procedure did Dr. Prasad suggest?
After evaluating the medical reports and diagnosing my father thoroughly, stroke rehabilitation was suggested that he said would help him to regain the lost physical and cognitive abilities.
What did the rehabilitation process incorporate?
They administered certain exercises to improve the muscle strength and coordination and speech abilities. As he lost his ability to walk, constraint-induced therapy for his legs was also performed along with mobility training.
How has the effect of rehabilitation been till now?
The rehabilitation has been effective although we have to continue it in the long run as well. It has eased his muscles to a great extent making him able to make some movements. I am really happy to see my father in a much-relaxed condition and thank Dr. Prasad for giving us the hope for his complete recovery through a proper treatment regime. BLK is an excellent hospital that does not lack in any medical facility; the patient care team in the hospital is commendable.
How did you get in touch with the hospital?
Vaidam’s team helped me to get an appointment at BLK Super Specialty Hospital. After I enquired in their website they reverted back and helped with quotes from the hospital and arranged the appointment date accordingly.
What other assistance did you receive from Vaidam Health?
The team of Vaidam has been very helpful to book appointment with the best neurologist in India. We did not have to worry about anything. They applied for visa on our behalf, arranged an accommodation for us near the hospital, arranged pickup from the airport, accompanied us to the hospital during the treatment and were in touch on a regular basis. We did not imagine that our medical trip could be so hassled free. I consider myself lucky to have contacted them. They are the right people for anyone who seek treatment in India.
